Mmmm those pads look good. Too pad you don't like poodle pads.

 

I'm cringing at how your cables are being bent....

Tonight I've been getting reacquainted with the system. When I received the pads, my head/ears were congested, so I took a 7 day hiatus. Early thoughts? A little less impact/slam but a slightly more refined middle and top.

:popcorn: 

 

Update :   :

 

I'll add I've already gotten used to the new pads and glad I made the swap.... they're in! :wink:

Is HE-6 due to be replaced this year ?  New lower models are coming.

At CES they showed the new HE560 prices at $899. Still used the mini-coaxial connector ;(.

Yep, slightly disappointing that. At least this time it looks as if it's angled forwards though.

I noticed that but I am surprised they are going back to wood as the LE5 did have issue with the drill out for the cable connection.

Think of all the people who bought aftermarket cables. They would not be so happy if Hifiman changed the connectors...

 

They are not bad, IMO, you just need to remember that the bolt is useless and turn the whole cable counter-wise (2.5 turns) and screw by twisting the cable.

I disliked the HE-500 silver cable, though.

I can wish as I had my HE6 and HE500 hardwired with a mini-xlr pigtail. smily_headphones1.gif
